Submission and Acceptance:

Each submission will be given careful editorial attention, and questions may be raised with the contributor before a final version is accepted.  There may also be some editing for language, especially where the contributor is not a native speaker of English, but any non-trivial suggestions will be discussed with the contributor to ensure that the intended meaning has been retained.  Contributors are encouraged to raise issues with the editor at an early stage if they are not certain of the best way to proceed, and their suggestions of the most effective ways to fulfil our remit - even if those go beyond the points made above - will be warmly welcomed.
Please note: The necessary complexity of the editorial processes, as well as possible delays in international postal services, imply that prompt attention to queries and serious adherence to deadlines are of the highest importance.
